    Samsung 911NT

    I can't find much information about these online even the Samsung website is a bit sparse on info but i've found them for less than £300 so I'm interested.

    Can anyone tell me what inputs/outputs it has?

    It has a DSUB input, DSUB output (if you are using it in thin client mode, this allows you to have a dual screen setup), RS232, 3x USB audio in and out and an ethernet port.

    Just my opinion, but they are *very* good.

    Excellent thanks. Any downsides to these devices that you can think of, most of the HP devices are now coming in silly specs they're almost full PC's, the Samsungs seem to be a lower more reasonable spec have you found any issues with this?

    No issues I can think of. They come with XP Embedded, which takes about 2 minutes to configure. And they just work.

    thin client

    ...seems ironic, terminals used to be modular (like the old VT100. Wyse60 etc), then favour changed to discrete components separating monitor from 'electronics' to give us the thin client format, providing more flexibility and increasing MTBF, and now going back to all in one...

    Maybe soon we'll see music centres back in fashion...

    I guess the arguements for an against are similar to those of Laptops v. PC's - good reasons for both, except laptops do actually provide real benefit in being portable, whereas it hard to see the benefit of all in one thin-clients... less cables...? Seems hardly worth the extra expense

    In a school, less cables = less maintenance. Less devices = less maintenance. Less maintenance = less time. (not to mention less space taken up)

    I really like the idea of just plug in and go, there's also less stuff for the kids to mess with.
